[GUIDE] Nexus 4 - Unlock & Root


Tuesday 13th of November 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Nexus 4 Unlock and Root Guide Let's just get right into this Warning: Unlocking the bootloader will wipe your entire device, including the internal sdcard. You will lose everything that you do not backup to your computer before you begin. Keep that in mind before you proceed.I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device. Unlocking and rooting always has the possibility of bringing about softbricks, voided warranties, global thermonuclear war, and soiled undergarments. You and you alone assume all risk if you choose to proceed. Are we clear? Good. The instructions in the following tabs are not difficult, but please, please, PLEASE read them fully and carefully. It is equally important for you to understand the process in addition to getting it right. Ready to roll... IntroA few items you will need before we begin.. 1. ADB and fastboot files If you have installed the Android SDK these will be located in your Android SDK /platform-tools directory, or wherever you downloaded them to before. Make sure you know where they are. If you need to grab them again, I tota

[HOW TO] Unlock Rezound's Bootloader [HTCdev.com] - Page 14


Monday 25th of February 2013 / droidforums.net
it won't let me open the file i need though. I'm on step 7 which says: Step 7Navigate to where you unzipped the ZIP file and go to the folder you just created (For Example: If you created the folder in C:Android, then you would type in Command Prompt: cd c:Android).The folder I created was named Root. This is Step 8 and what it's supposed to look like:Type in Command Prompt: fastboot oem get_identifier_token.http://www.htcdev.com/images/uploads...ader/step8.png(just copy and paste this in the address bar)This picture is like steps 7 and 8 together.Anyway in the end it's supposed to give me this long list of numbers and letters and it's my token to unlock my bootloader. Since my folder is named Root that's what I've been typing in in place of Android but the message I keep getting says: "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect." What I type in looks the exact same except mine says Root where the example says Android and mine doesn't say Admin it says my name. Please help and I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense I tried to explain as best as I coul

ID Token with fastboot


Wednesday 28th of December 2011 / androidforums.com
I'm currently trying to root my WFS and I've got as far as trying to disable S-ON and trying to get my id token, but failing badly.Not really worried about S-on for now but I want to know how to get the token?I'm using fastboot but the problem is that it doesn't have the command "get_identification_token" available to it. Is there another way or do I need to get another version of fastboot? (Link? )I'm using CMD, cd'ing the directory to C:Android oot (the folder where fastboot is stored on my pc), punching in the command "fastboot oem get_identification_token" and getting invalid command error. I type in "fastboot oem h" to view command list, and this command doesn't exist apparently?I'm completely new to Android, and this place looks cosy

How to Return to Stock Jellybean


Saturday 06th of October 2012 / droidforums.net
I decided to make this thread based on helping another user tonight. This guide is simply based on jntdroid's guide with updated package names for JellyBean. Make sure you have adb, fastboot, and all necessary drivers installed on your PC. If you do not have these drivers you can get them from SBenson's Root and Unlock thread found here. Once you have all the drivers and adb and fastboot set up, download this package:https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-f17426e6.tgz****Note that using this guide you will wipe your /data including your internal storage****1. After the package is done downloading, you will need to extract the .tgz file to your directory where fastboot is stored. If you used SBenson's Root and Unlock guide, it should be found in C:/Root.2. Once you have extracted those files into the correct directory, you then need to open a terminal. Again, assuming you used SBenson's guide, you need to put:cd C:/rootIf you didn't use SBenson's guide then simply cd to the proper directory where your fastboot is located.3. fastboot flash bootloader-toro-primelc03.img (note: if usin

[How-to] Install AOSP Gingerbread on the Nexus One


Friday 17th of December 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
Credit where credit's due: These are instructions for installing an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) build of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It was , who's far more of a bad-*** at this than I. The instructions: Download the Gingerbread build from Mr. Soyars. () Copy it to your Nexus One's SD card.(If you have custom recovery already, skip to No. 5.) If you're running a stock Nexus One, you'll need a custom recovery to flash the Gingerbread build. Easiest thing to do is to download Amon Ra's recovery (), then copy it to the /tools folder in your Android SDK directory. (You've , right?)Reboot the phone into the bootloader (turn off, hold trackball and power) and plug into your computer. Make sure your hboot verison is 35.0017. (If you have the latest OTA, you should be good. But double-check.)Type fastboot flash recovery xxxxxxxxxxxx (where xxxxxxxx is the exact filename of the recovery image, including extension).Now enter the recovery (from choose "bootloader," then "recovery").Wipe data and cache (dunno if you have to, but it's a good idea).Flash gingerbread_pass

Bricked My Phone


Friday 13th of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Well, I was running TWRP with the stock ROM for a while. Eventually, a few hours ago, I decided to install Android Revolution 4.3 Jelly Bean Google Play Edition... So I downloaded the .zip file for the new ROM, copied it into the root folder of my HTC One (main directory) and restarted my phone into the bootloader... I then went into recovery of TWRP and selected Install... Then I selected the Android Revolution 4.3 file and swiped the screen to install it... Everything went well while installing it, but then... Once it rebooted when finished, it's now stuck in the bootloader screen and I can't seem to do anything to get out of it. So I googled information on how to "unbrick" the HTC One... That's when I was advised to "relock" my HTC One with command "fastboot oem lock"... It relocked the phone. Then I was advised to download and unzip the Sprint RUU for version 1.29.xxxxxxx..... But that's where things failed when it tried to reinstate the stock ROM from the RUU. I remember that I'm using version 1.31.xxxx (the latest OTA). So my question is.... should
